Number of Cancer Patients Grows

Baylor conducted a thorough analysis of national cancer rates, as well as regional and local needs in planning the new cancer center and cancer hospital. The incidence rates of a number of types of cancer, including liver, kidney and thyroid, continue to rise, according to the National Cancer Institute. In Texas, 97,281 new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in 2008, according to the Texas Cancer Registry. In Dallas County, 8,451 new cancer cases are expected in 2008 - up by 100 cases from 2007.

Researchers based their analysis on data from the National Cancer Institute. While about one in 26 Americans today have had cancer, by 2020 roughly one in 19 will have been diagnosed with the disease.
